Thursday morning musings…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 9:12 am

Good morning readers…

I’m in the final push to get ready for the art show this weekend. I won’t have as much ready as I would like to have but I’m not worrying over it as there will be three of us sharing the space so between all of us we should be able to fill the space nicely.

I don’t know about you but I tend to be a procrastinator, waiting until the last minute to do things. I’ve been like this all my life. It works ok for some things but not for others like say…..making books for shows.

Do any of you who do shows like to have a project to work on will you are there? I’ve found that people are interested when they see you working on something. It draws them in. I thought I’d make some lotus star books while I am sitting there. I can prep all the paper and covers so that all I need to do is fold the paper and adhere the sections together. They look pretty cool when they are made.

Of note:

The November Issue of Galley Gab is available for download. It’s an emagazine geared towards letterpress printermakers but I find it interesting. This month’s issue has an article about the steamroller prints.

I hope everyone has a great day.

  1. Good luck with the show. I don’t seem to hear of any similar events here in the UK, if there are - I don’t hear about them!

    I’d never heard of Lotus Star books either - they are lovely. I shall definitely have a go at those!

  2. I think I’m the world’s worst procrastinator! And I’m right there with you - I still haven’t finished my books for the boutique, but I’m getting close!

    Good luck with the show! Oh, and I hope you are finally feeling better!
